Indre, France

On Wednesday 29th March 2017 my photography took me to the department of Indre in central France. Indre is one of those places with some hidden gems such as the river valley of the Creuse. The Beaux Villages de France of Gargilesse Dampierre is notable for the famous 19th century writer George Sand who lived there. In addition to the southern tip of Indre I did try my best with the neighbouring department of Creuse but just didn’t feel happy […]

Learn ND graduated filters

Learn how to use and choose the correct neutral density or ND grad/ graduated filter. Very often this type of tutorial appears in the photography magazines but they’re not giving you all of the information you need to choose the correct density. When I first started learning photography I found it extremely irritating when I asked others “how do I choose the correct grad” and get various responses that led to nothing. Hopefully what I’ve done with this tutorial is […]

Mini location guide – Dorset

Dorset is home to the famous Jurassic coast World Heritage Site but there are also numerous other places you can go to in the county. Presented here are three of my favourites as well as an abandoned shoot at […]

Gloucester Cathedral

If you’re a fan of Harry Potter you should recognize the cloisters from the 1st, 2nd and 6th films. First thing in the morning I stopped off at Burford as I wanted to do a recce of the water meadows for a future date. Join me as I try to capture in the best way that I […]

A failed shoot in Langeais

Langeais is very close to my home in the Loire Valley being just a short 15 minute drive away. I had two targets in mind. The first was a dawn shoot overlooking the city to the château and the second was to capture the suspension bridge that crosses the Loire. Unfortunately, the predicted weather didn’t happen and I was left having to pack up my things and head back home. As a travel photographer, weather is something that I rely […]
